2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half-pint by gravicask, shared with Finn at NWAF ’13. Clear rosewood coloured body. Naked surface. Earthy malts to the nose with hints of liquorice. Dark malty taste with a peaty touch. Short-lived roasted bitter finish. Decent enough considering the low abv (Manchester, 23.01.2013).

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
8th April 2015: hand-pulled pint in the Trafalgar, Ramsey IoM. Black body with a good tanned topping. Malty from the start, it has a solid backbone of chocolate maltiness in the aroma which carries on into the taste, mildly bitter in the finish and almost semi-sweet initially. I liked it, the huge swan neck it was pulled through gave it a good swirl around and once settled it looked a picture.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gravity cask at Bree Louise, 3.4%. Very dark brown, small bubbly tan head. Aroma is light, watery, some smoke, subtle sweet malts. Body is medium, low carbonation, watery smooth. Taste is molasses, touch of smoke, finishes sweet, no bitterness as you’d expect for the style. Subtle sweet and smokey beer. The pleasant flavour makes up for the watery body and lack of aroma.

A colablack beer with an almost medium and beige head. The aroma is balanced mix of roastiness, coffee and chocolate. Surprisingly rich. Taste is also nice, roastiness, some coffee, hint of chocolate. Unfortunately, the light body is disturbing in the taste, low carbonation. Tasteful and easy beer with a rich flavours.
